Consult with God about the "Proper Order" Today!

1 Chronicles 15:13 For because you did not do it the first time, the LORD our God broke out against us, because we did not consult Him about the proper order.” 14 So the priests and the Levites sanctified themselves to bring up the ark of the LORD God of Israel.

Two men died when David allowed the Ark of the Covenant to be carried on an ox cart (Read 1 Chronicles 13). This did not happen because God was mean. It happened because David, and those around him, ignored God's order. The Ark was designed to only be transported by priests using the tools provided.

Ignoring God's word, order, and wisdom in life is like driving on the wrong side of the highway. It's just a matter of time before trouble, or tragedy, happens.

The solution, then and now, is the same: "Consult Him (God) about the proper order."

Take time to pray, understand the Scriptures, heed godly counsel, and be led by the Spirit of God (not just your own spirit). Getting the proper order may only take a few minutes, but His order will save you hours and hours of heartache!
